Part of our weekly cycle of training with our Senior Group is dedicated to working all four strokes together. It is our goal to develop the complete student athlete in all four strokes.
Here is an example of what our afternoon workout was tonight for one section of our Senior Group. This morning was more of an aerobic technique with mixed pulling and some kicking drills. However, tonight we emphasized work on threshold. Enjoy!
